My oh My where did May go?! (update w/pics)

Thursday, May 30, 2013

The older I get, the faster the time goes. Why is that? emoticon

I have been sort of MIA the past few weeks. Let me fill you in.

We had some out of town (state) company. DH's children and grandchildren. I think we had 15 - 20 ppl here at any given time, 3 meals and snacks per day emoticon Couple of my kids w/family could not make it, so we had 6 of our 9 grandkids here, with their parents.

I also had a trail ride scheduled for Memorial Day at our place, before I knew company was coming. The rain scared many ppl away, that and other previous commitments, so we only had 9 horses, 10 riders (one granddaughter was in the buddy seat behind me) and 2 tag-along bloodhounds. We followed up with a potluck. Just as we got back & ready to eat, the rain POURED!!

So I had been busy getting the house ready, the yard ready (it really got away from me with all the rain), the trail ready, I was busy planting garden and flowers at my house but also spent a couple of mornings at the park working on our garden club beds, then the storm hit and I had to deal with wind damage like limbs/trees down in yard, new trees needed replanted, trees/limbs down on trail... emoticon but I just kept thinking of all the great exercise emoticon

Then our company was here for almost a week. We had a blast.

Here are a few highlights:
















I had a few days to recuperate - I really needed it, I felt like I was hit by a truck - and I start water aerobics tonight with my sister. That should be fun! emoticon

    With the exception of the storm damage sounds like you have been having fun. Thanks for sharing your pictures. They make me homesick for our farm back in Missouri.
